For dessert, Jorge made some Lemon Curd Tartlets. This is not for the faint hearted people as the recipe calls for lots of eggs, sugar and butter. Portion control is the key to a healthy diet.
We learned from Jorge that we have to understand the recipe well before we start working on the recipe. For example, this recipe calls for some special equipments that needs to be prepared first. Stainless steel pan is crucial in this recipe as we are cooking with lemon. Also, a bowl of iced water is needed in this recipe to immediately cool down the lemon curd to prevent it from curdling. Jorge uses this phrase ‘Mise en Place’ i.e. making sure everything is in place.
- 12 tart shells
- 200ml lemon juice
